Situated in the heart of the city, in a converted wing of the old Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Browns Brasserie & Bar Cambridge serves tasty European-inspired dishes and colourful cocktails in a lively atmosphere. Set in a building close to the River Cam gorgeous Virginia creeper frames the entrance, and Browns boasts a terrace for sunny summer dining.

Spanning from breakfast through to lunch and dinner, the Browns menu offers all-day brasserie dining. Indulgent plats du jour and Sunday roasts are staple favourites, while sumptuous European flavours include lobster tagliatelle, the wild boar & chorizo burger, or steak pie with buttered mash and broad beans. A sophisticated children’s menu at Browns offers tempting favourites with a grown-up twist.

Showcasing a penchant for cocktails, the Browns bar offers an array of classic mixes, signature concoctions and thirst-quenching mocktails, as well as fine world wines, smoothies and creamy milkshakes. Enjoy Browns’ afternoon tea and cake accompanied freshly-roasted coffee from an independent supplier, or a warming pot of loose leaf tea.

Browns Brasserie & Bar in Cambridge is just a 15-minute walk from Cambridge Rail Station.

    Had a lovely meal last night at browns, I had the Devon crab on toast to start followed by the pork belly both full of flavour and enjoyed the mini pie that comes with it. Waitress was brilliant helped us out alot 5* to her.

    We had the meal offer of two courses plus a glass of wine for £19.95. My beef croquette and scallops was really good and my main course of lamb rump could not be faulted. I asked for medium and got it and the portion was very good indeed. My wife's meal was also splendid. We had coffee and we were served with hot milk as requested.

    I was doubtful as to the quality of the wine that we were going to be offered but pleasantly surprised at the choice. We both had a lovely glass of Pinot Noir.

    All in all, a very good dining experience. Well done to the Chef.

  • (((** 4 April 2017 by Annette Callum from Cambridge

    Waited too long to be served , we booked a special £19.95 meal to include 2 courses and a drink. The waiter did not seem to know about the offer and we waited a long time to get a drink. Was going to order another drink but decided the wait was too long. The ambience was good but as usual Saturday night a lot of people and the staff were pushed. The food was OK and the waiter was good but just too busy. We have always like Browns and will go again but not for a while.

    Mussels ok but the meal looked tired
    Did not appear to be freshly cooked. The sauce uninspiring
